Title: Swift’s ‘Skinnibonia’: A new poem from Lady Acheson’s manuscript
Author: Woolley, James
Abstract: Swift and Lady Acheson began, but did not complete, a manuscript compilation of poems he wrote at Market Hill. This volume, here described in detail for the first time, provides the text of Swift's previously unpublished "Excellent New Panegyrick on Skinnibonia" (1728), a 100-line poem about Lady Acheson. The volume includes numerous non-Swift poems, mostly on Irish topics and in some cases unpublished. A full chronological listing of Swift's Market Hill writings reveals Swift's 1728-29 Market Hill visit to have been a time of intense productivity.
